Eulogy - Les Patchett

The Australian Dancing Society family extends sympathy to Julie Patchett and daughter on the passing of Les Patchett age 64 in Denmark.

Les was an Australian Champion and with Julie, he had a very successful career as competitors, Studio Principles and Coaches. Les has lived abroad for many years. He was the Foundation Executive member of the ADS branch in WA when it was first established.

May he rest in peace.
